as we were walking through the parking lot yesterday to go into target, caleb picked up a piece of trash from the ground. i immediately told him to drop it because it was yucky. he looked at me seriously and said, "no mama, we have to throw it in the garbage!" picture this with the best 3 year old serious face complete with a brow furrow and duck lips to show his insistence.
today caleb, you taught me not to pass up a time to do something helpful for the earth and that it's no big deal to pick up trash, we just go in and wash our hands.
thank you for that life lesson. i will always cherish your strong will to do the right thing.
